This collection of essays examines how notions of  coming back to life  shape practices and ideals throughout the ancient Mediterranean. All contributors focus on the common theme of  coming back to life  as a discursive and descriptive space in which antique peoples construct, maintain, and negotiate the porous boundaries between  past and present, mortality and immortality, death and life .
Topics: Future life--Mediterranean Region--Antiquities, Mediterranean Region--Antiquities
